My Girl, Just the Way You Are

My Girl, Just the Way You Are

One of my all time favorite songs is My Girl by The Temptations. I have liked that song long before I had a girl. I like the words, “Sunshine on a Cloudy Day ….. When it’s cold outside I’ve got the month of May. What can make me feel this way, My Girl.” I figured that the Temptations had the right idea and if I could find that girl everything would be right with the world. I’m happy to say that my girl and I will celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary on August 18th,if God blesses us to see that day.{{more}}Marilyn has been my sunshine on cloudy days, and she has been that month of May. We have had a wonderful life. I will say that there have been some days that, despite our best efforts and the efforts of The Temptations, we could not sing every cloud away. However we always knew that the sun would shine again.As I look at this phase of life and survey the road we have traveled, and with the benefit of hindsight, I would have changed a few things or done some things differently, but the one constant on this journey would be My Girl. Bruno Mars sums it up best in his song Just the Way You Are.Editor’s note: These songs are posted at www.westtexastribune.com
